A nice beach for strolling along. Good sand for the children. A little too cold for swimming but the sea looked inviting.

Beautiful sandy beach was not busy in the fall but too cold to stay long other than to take pictures.

Lots of people picnicking and families having fun in this huge beach. We walked along the beach and then went on the trail up to the visit centre along the lake up to steps to the tower. Heard a loon. Very peaceful

Kids will have a blast surfing the waves on their flutter boards. We’re just the perfect height when we were there. Wonderful sand to walk on. Beach is short, but sweet. Seemed to be lots of parking.

Soft clean sand. Great family outing. Has facilities and an outdoor shower to rinse off. You have a great view of the Keltic Lodge

Nice locale - and the masses of rocks they've brought in as you walk towards the beach make a nice clean access. The walk along Freshwater Lake is cool - you can see ocean on one side, freshwater on the other.

Lovely large beach where there are shallow areas for families and children to enjoy on a hot summer day or stroll in the off season I would think. A must do

We spent the day driving the Cabot Trail through the National Park and intended to do a hike later. We had packed a picnic lunch and found a perfect picnic table at Ingonish Beach. In the shade and near the water with clean public bathrooms.
